Against the Grain: Art, Politics, and the Gentrification of San Francisco




Why has the Bay Area been such a cauldron for the melding of art and politics? And what did a period of heightened gentrification do to San Francisco's radical culture? Komotion International, the legendary artist collective and performance, music, and art space -- which nurtured musicians like Michael Franti, Consolidated, and Primus -- epitomized the spirt of rebellion and creativity, leaving a deep mark. Collective co-founders Robin Ballinger and Mat Callahan discuss Komotion's glory years and eventual demise during the "code wars." This is an "Against The Grain" show aired originally on KPFA, 94.1 FM in the Bay Area, on May 29 2012. (Used with permission.)
